Tasting Note
View
Brilliance, straw yellow with greenish highlights.
Nose
Mineral aromas appear first, underlain with notes of white flowers, tropical fruit such as mango, stone fruit such as nectarine and a more citrus touch of ripe grapefruit.
Mouth
A broad wine, full of texture and continental character. An initial fresh sensation with a more voluminous middle palate and a long refreshing finish. The notes on the nose reappear at different moments. The more citrus notes give way to mineral notes and touches of mango on the palate rounded off by white flowers and nuances of melon.

Vineyard and processing
Elaboration (vinification)
The Albariño grapes come from vineyards that are harvested separately when they have ripened optimally. Each batch is fermented separately to obtain texture and complexity. The coldest plot is fermented at a low temperature to obtain the citrus component. Creaminess is achieved from fermentations on the lees and daily stirring. The vanilla and woody notes come from fermentation in barrels. To achieve even greater complexity we use a small percentage of Albariño aged for over 10 months in barrels.
Selected yeasts are used in the fermentations. The wine is kept under optimum conditions until it is stabilized, filtered and bottled.
Vineyard (viticulture)
The 2016 harvest at Raimat could be described as exceptional: a very mild summer and autumn, which extended the ripening period into mid November and, in some cases, delayed the start of the harvest by 10 days in comparison with the average. This is unusual in these latitudes.
For the white grape varietals, the harvesting was spread out with a difference of up to one month between plots of the same varietal. This yielded wines with very different expressions (notes of citrus, tropical fruit, different acidity levels, etc.) This factor will contribute complexity to the wines with a very interesting palette of flavours and aromas.
